Papertrey Ink's Transformation Tuesday!


Good morning, friends, and welcome to this week's Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday. This week I thought it would be fun to take a decidedly feminine project,  that I created waaaay back in April of 2012 for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop,  and give it a Holiday 2018 makeover.

Here's my original card (click HERE to see the original post):

Yup..... surely a 'girly' card, with ribbon, rolled roses, pearls, polka dots and a bit of pink. However, it's been given a Holiday 2018 makeover with a pretty Berry Sorbet ribbon, snowflakes in shades of green and blue and a beautiful, texture-rich birch background.

The pretty be-ribboned arrangement at the base of my tag is enhanced with foliage and snowflakes from Seasonal Borders: Winter.  Although it's hard to see, the Spring Rain snowflakes are glittered up a bit, giving this holiday card a little added dimension.

I love the texture that the birch background provides, which can be achieved by stamping you own (Birch Background stamp) or by using the patterned papers from the Wonderland Patterned Paper Collection, as I've done here. 

While I had all of those lovely snowflakes floating around I created one more Holiday 2018 card in shades of Soft Stone and Ocean Tides:
